Guest Author's Note: "The nice thing about doing guest spots for FiD is being able to cover stuff that I don't have the opportunity for in my own comic. I've had this historical story in mind for over a year, but every time I tried scripting it as a special issue it just didn't work out, so I decided to do it in short form here. The only bit of those old scripts I've managed to salvage is the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy reference in the last panel. The characters are a bit of a hodgepodge; half of them are extremely loose expies of characters from the 'Tales of the Jedi' comics, two are even looser expies of characters from other Star Wars comics, and the one played by Pinkie is (at least visually) taken from Final Fantasy X-2."

Children without permission? That's... an interesting can of worms.

Well, presumably Rainbow's player meant the DM decided Rainbow Dash voluntarily had kids without consulting the player, rather than Rainbow Dash being forced in-character to have kids. Does that make sense? Not having names for the players makes talking about them surprisingly challenging.

Yes, that's what I'm saying as well. The can of worms I'm referring to is how the GM made an important life-decision for someone's character without their consultation.

As Guest below said, even if it's a favorable decision, players do not like such decisions made without them. Even I would take issue with it.

There are other potential implications as well... I consider this to happen more or less concurrently with the main plot developments, but since the plot of my comic follows both show and IDW comics canon, that means things happened to NPC-Mane-Six in the previous game that haven't happened in FiD yet, such as Princess Twilight, Spike's wings, etc. The implication being that the GM also made those decisions without their players' say-so, unless it turns out that Twilight's player has her epic destiny picked out already (which is a distinct possibility).
